Rockville Outpatient Program FAQ
During outpatient counseling at our Rockville clinic, your adolescent, teen, or young adult will meet with a local therapist while maintaining their daily schedule. For those who have moderate mental health symptoms and a daily routine that’s not negatively impacting their mental well-being, outpatient treatment may be a good option.
Outpatient visits to our clinic can involve weekly counseling sessions with one of our Rockville therapists. We also offer group therapy through our intensive outpatient and therapeutic day treatment programs.
There are many benefits to outpatient treatment at our Rockville clinic. Our programs allow adolescents, teens, and young adults to maintain work and school schedules and receive support from friends and family while receiving counseling — and at a more affordable cost on average than most inpatient treatment options.
The main difference between weekly individual counseling sessions, the intensive outpatient program, and the therapeutic day treatment program at our Rockville clinic is how long your adolescent, teen, or young adult will spend in treatment. Weekly individual therapy sessions require the least amount of time and can be scheduled at a specific time of day. An intensive outpatient program takes place in the evening to accommodate school and work schedules and typically meets three hours a day, three to four days per week, for a total of nine to 12 hours per week. A therapeutic day treatment program typically meets 5.5 hours a day, five days a week, for a total of 27.5 hours per week.
The goal of outpatient therapy at our program is to help adolescents, teens, and young adults overcome difficult behavioral health and substance abuse issues like anxiety and depression through visiting one of our Rockville therapists for weekly individual counseling sessions or an intensive outpatient or therapeutic day treatment program.
The main difference between inpatient hospitalization and outpatient treatment is the treatment setting. Our outpatient services, which include an IOP and a therapeutic day treatment program, provide a good option for adolescents, teens, and young adults whose needs can be met by visiting a therapist in their local Rockville neighborhood while living at home and maintaining their daily routine. An inpatient hospitalization is a good choice for those who need to leave their home and receive dedicated 24-hour care in a hospital setting to overcome mental health and substance abuse issues.
The length of outpatient treatment depends on each youth’s particular needs and whether they’re attending weekly individual therapy sessions or participating in a therapeutic day treatment or intensive outpatient program in Rockville. On average, outpatient treatment at our clinic can last from three months to one year. If a deeper level of service is needed, adolescents, teens, and young adults can step up a level of care to an inpatient hospitalization.
